Ive been using the Robinhood app on my phone to trade some stocks. I love the app. Now my brother is using it also, and he has become a stock trading junkie. I had to explain a trading plan to him so he would stop looking at his phone all day. Anyway, its a great free app with commission free trades...

Re: In case anyone wants to jump down the rabbit hole

I looked a lot like I remember it. However, my memory is shit these days. I was moderating in the "I found it on the web" forum at that time I see. It just still hurts to see all of those names of old friends. I really miss those guys and gals.

Excellent advice! Learn something new. I'm sure that there is something that you have been wanting to learn, but with work, your time free to commit to the task was limited. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn a new skill or hobby.

Re: Trying NA

My biggest problem with NA/AA and the like, is that they have you announce yourself as such: "Hello my name is ________ and I'm an addict/alcoholic" etc. My beef is that if you are trying to quit being something, why are you constantly reinforcing that label? Would it not make more sense to say: "He...

If the carrier just delivered it to the wrong house, he should just deliver it himself if the address is on the package. Otherwise, read the book that the universe delivered to him, and then take it to the post office. Its no major crime opening a package that was wrongly delivered, especially if th...

Yep, its not hard. Just learn Java and XML if you want to make an app for Android. Then download android studio or eclipse, and have fun writing your app. If you want to develop for iphone, I would rather bang my head on the keyboard but thats me.
